Knightmare Posted May 19, 2018 Share Posted May 19, 2018 Long story short, my motherboard/cpu (I'm not sure which) died and now I have a new computer. Read about that in the link below: My friend built it for me because I didn't want the parts sitting outside in the weather while I was at work, so I just gave him my case and had the parts shipped to his house. I know that when it comes to new hardware, Windows 7 has a hard time with new drivers conflicting with old drivers. I did a basic Google search for how to install a new motherboard without reinstalling Windows, and one of the links suggested a program called Paragon Adaptive Restore. Apparently, it will go into the OS and remove all of the drivers for the old hardware, which will make room for the drivers for the new hardware. I wasn't sure if anyone had used this program and had any luck with it. Or maybe you've never heard of it and I just gave you a new software to test for the weekend.
